|Bio and Links|
I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones. |
Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.
Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.
I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).
I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.
A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.
To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

|Barbara May||Graham Cemetery|
In reference to your info here about Graham Cemetery, I can see this cemetery from my home and walk there probably once a week. There are some old fence posts around the cemetery. They are T posts. Also the cemetery is planted in vinca which was commonly planted in cemeteries in the 1800's. The cemetery is larger than it looks at first glance, but it is marked by the T posts and the vinca. Besides the four easily seen and marked graves, there are several more graves which are marked only with natural stones. Some of these have wooden stakes marking them. Others you just basically trip over. I would guess that a better count of interments in this cemetery would be 10 to 15. All people buried here are most likely related to the family of Littleton Graham. I also (personal belief) think that the son Cyrus who was killed at the Battle of Prairie Grove is buried here instead of at the Confederate Cemetery. If he were your son, wouldn't you have gone to get him and bring him home?
|Ann Nickell||Jannie B. Nickell|
Good morning! I have tried unsuccessfully to get Jannie B. Nickell's name corrected to "Rebecca Jane "Jannie" Harred Nickell" but no luck so far. Her memorial number is 86460489. She was my step-grandmother. She married my grandfather, Robert Clinton Nickell, at age 17 - they had 4 children, and she died at age 30. I appreciate your posting the picture of her headstone. I did not have that. Thanks!
|MidwestMom||Livingston County Poor Farm|
I have those pictures for you. I got both the cemetery and the old Poor Farm buildings (what is left.) Soon they will be torn down. I can't find your email address. Will you send it to me again so I can send you these pictures please? Thanks! Pam

I would like your permission to use Alexander Parland's photo in my family tree on Ancestry?

I am writing a two-volume book on the 8th Indiana. I would like to include photos of the soldiers and their headstones with their biographies. I would like to use some of your photos in the book and will give you credit in the caption for each photo. If you are interested, I can let you know when the book is published. If it is ok to use your photos, could you also give you your first and last name for the captions?

|Leonard J. McCown||RE: Rosemary Mickler|
If you have actually seen her marker there at the cemetery, then we have to accept the fact that she is buried there, or at least probably so. I thought perhaps the wrong St. Joseph Cemetery was chose, as there are many and I know of several in the area of Florida where she lived. Thanks so much. I appreciate your response. Leonard

84,186,213 -- are you sure she is buried in Arkansas? Surely in Florida.
